History
Strawberries can be traced back to the Romans and Greeks.  Later medieval stonemasons carved them into altars and church pillars.  In the 1700s, the French horticulturists crossed a Northern American strawberry with a Chilean one.  The modern strawberry can be traced to the results of this experiment.

Facts
